These Are The 7 Wonders Of Canada

Everyone has heard about the seven wonders of the world, but it's rare to find someone who can actually name them all. That's becuase  it's easy to forget about them, since they don't exist anymore. (all except the pyramid at Giza)

In case you're curious the original seven wonders were: The Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.

These days, there are still some wonders that exist all around us. That's why a few years back, CBC tried to figure out whist the 7 wonders of Canada were but their list was pretty terrible.

To give you an idea, #1 on the list was a Canoe. and I'm not talking about some kind of record setting giant canoe, or and ancient piece of Canada's history. They literally juts meant the invention of the canoe.

That's why they asked Canadians to vote for their own list of wonders:
